Mi­crosoft An­nounces Sur­face Go

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - CONTENTS -

EX­PAND­ING ITS SUR­FACE LINEUP, Mi­crosoft has an­nounced the launch of Sur­face Go. Mark­ing a new en­try point for the Sur­face de­vices, the Sur­face go is a com­pact, 10-inch tablet start­ing at $399. The Sur­face Go seems to be de­signed to take on the re­cently launched stu­dent-fo­cused Ap­ple iPad 9.7inch with Ap­ple Pen­cil sup­port that can be con­nected to all kinds of Blue­tooth key­boards.

Panos Panay, Chief Product Of­fi­cer, in a blog post says it is the small­est, light­est and most af­ford­able Sur­face yet. “We had to ask our­selves what peo­ple want and need from a 10inch Sur­face. The an­swers seem ob­vi­ous – lightweight, pro­duc­tive, and ac­ces­si­ble to more peo­ple.” The Sur­face Go is a 10-inch tablet weigh­ing 520 grams and is 8.3mm sleek. It fea­tures a cus­tom-built high-res­o­lu­tion Pix­elSense Dis­play that sup­ports Sur­face Pen with 4098 lev­els for pres­sure sen­si­tiv­ity, low pen par­al­lax, low la­tency, and pre­ci­sion for ac­cu­rate note tak­ing, draw­ing and com­puter-aided de­sign. The tablet is pow­ered by 7th Gen­er­a­tion In­tel Pen­tium Gold Pro­ces­sor 4415Y, in a fan­less de­sign, and can of­fer a bat­tery of up to nine hours. Users will be able to run Of­fice apps on this tablet. Just like the Sur­face Pro tablet, even the Go comes with a built-in kick­stand that ex­tends to 165 de­grees and comes with ports such as Sur­face Con­nect for charg­ing and dock­ing, USB-C 23.1 for data, video and charg­ing, a head­phone jack, and a mi­croSD card reader for stor­age ex­pan­sion. The Sur­face Go WiFi with 4GB RAM and 64GB on­board stor­age has been priced at $399 and the one with 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD for $549. Ac­ces­sories such as the Sur­face Go Type Cover (black), Sur­face Go Sig­na­ture Type C Cover, Sur­face Mo­bile Mouse and Sur­face Pen can be pur­chased sep­a­rately for $99, $129, $34.99 and $99, re­spec­tively.
